From Wednesday May 8th through Saturday May 11th KPTZ will hold our annual Spring Fund Drive. We are seeking funding to be able to double the size of our signal reach.
Recently, we’ve received approval from the FCC to expand our signal from 900 watts to 2200 watts, so we’re poised to grow the station’s coverage significantly. We’re hoping to raise $15,000 during our shortened drive, and we’re inviting you all to renew your memberships!
This month, people throughout the region have been reading and discussing Pam Houston’s Contents May Have Shifted as part of the Port Townsend Library’s Community Read. KPTZ has joined in with a series of short readings of chapters from the book, and a 1/2 hr. interview with Pam Houston and KPTZ host, Sheila Bender.
The chapters are each only 3 to 7 minutes long, and are being broadcast in our news and information blocks from noon to 1pm and 5 to 6pm on weekdays, as well as during the noon hour on Sunday. They are meant to stand alone, not necessarily to be heard in sequence.
The readings were produced for KPTZ by Sheila Khalov, and read by the actors who performed the stories live at PT Shorts at the beginning of the month (Marsha Goldman, Barbara Thompson, Lynn Ring, Cris Wilson).
The extended interview with Pam Houston can be heard on Saturday March 23rd at 12:30 pm, and again on Wed. March 27 at about 12:25pm, after one of the chapter readings.
Join us and tune in as we take part in this fun community event!
This Wednesday, Tossed Salad host, Phil Andrus, will catch up with treasured musicians Mollie O’Brien and Rich Moore, favorites among lovers of Americana and Folk music.
“Mollie O’Brien and Rich Moore are two national musical treasures. Combining blues and bluegrass (and everything in-between) with their soulful voices and stunning instrumental chops, they are truly among the best out there keeping American music alive and vital.” - Dave Alvin
Don’t miss it! Wednesday March 6, 1-2pm on KPTZ.
After their KPTZ interview, Mollie and Rich will be playing at the Upstage at 7:30pm.
Considering the Alternatives: Issues in Aging is a community service of the Olympic Area Agency on Aging, and KPTZ.
Twice a month Janet Parris, Program Development Manager for the agency, and veteran of 25 years in the field of gerontology and community service, shares short commentaries on the issues she and her clients address every day: from stereotypes and prejudices addressing “seniors,” through the often confusing rules and programs that assist elder citizens, to long term care, health care and many other issues.
The program begins Wed. Feb. 6th at 12:15pm after our popular Nature Now, and will be repeated the following Saturday at 11:45 am. New commentaries will be broadcast every two weeks and will also be available as podcasts on our website.
Catch it Wednesdays at 12:15 and Saturdays at 11:45am, twice a month here on KPTZ.
There’s a Time Change of evening Talk and Interview Programs
Responding to suggestions by listeners, responses to surveys, and our desire to get the right programming mix for our community, we are changing the time of our weekday evening News, Talk and Information programs. Shows like KPTZ Compass, Boat Talk, Booklovers’ Cafe, PT Pleasures and Treasures, Under the Rainbow, Living on the Salish Sea, The Bioneers and Bookworm will now be aired in the 5-6pm hour, starting the week of Feb. 11, 2013.
Our new News and Information blocks (as they say in radio) are weekdays Noon to 1pm and 5 - 6pm, with repeats on Saturdays from 11am - 1pm. Many of our programs will be available on our growing Podcast feature of this website.
Please let us know what you think. Write to us at the new email@example.com mailbox. Let us know what you like, dislike, want to hear, feel is missing, and what you think about the scheduling of our programs.
